What we do

Welcome to Go4Liftoff; your one stop eco-system for keeping track of and keeping up to date with both upcoming and past events in the world of spaceflight and space exploration. We track all orbital launches and most popular sub-orbital launches, including, but not limited to those from, SpaceX Rocket Lab, NASA, ULA, ROSCOSMOS, ISRO, Blue Origin and Arianespace. All of the products within the Go4Liftoff eco-system are in active development and we are constantly searching for the best way to keep you up to date with events in the world of spaceflight by presenting you with an abudance of information in an easily digestible way. We also provide you with filters to allow you to only see the information you are most interested in.

Technology

The Go4Liftoff eco-system currently consists of two main components: the Go4Liftoff Server and the Go4Liftoff Android Application.
The Go4Liftoff server contains the website, discord bot, twitter bot and the notifier which is responsible for sending out Android notifications. The Go4Liftoff server side is written entirely in GoLang but is written in a way which allows each part of the server to run seperately. At present all of the server components run on a Digital Ocean VPS.
The Go4Liftoff Android App is written in Java and is fully native.
